Some may frown at the notion of this location. But it's quite entertaining. It must be understood that you will be approached by ladies of the evening offering their services to you. And that's their Cup of tea. If you let them know you are not interested in their services they will leave you alone. They will recognize that that's... More

Very nice place for adult entertainment, the beach area is a sight to see and one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. I would advise anyone that is looking for a good time to visit this hotel.

Haven't stayed here for 2 years -pretty much the same. A great beach front property . Restaurant is very good -$$. Forget the Casino -go to Crocs instead. "Music" until 1:00 AM -pretty lame to say the least . Book a room to the right of the restaurant-quieter .Not recommended for families . Hungry hookers abound .

This place is not for family. However, it is for couples and singles.. Front desk was friendly, rooms were good, right on the beach and so much beautiful local flavor to look at. Cocal is within east walking distance of many local restaurants and cabs are always waiting out front.

I recommended 2 nights maximum in a visit to the location. There are several hotels within a 2 buck drive radius and the taxis a are safe. Now you will be taken by the cheap drinks, lots of friendly women. Have a budget. Stay in a budget and you will be just fine. This is a do over for me... More
